With friends like these, at least they get caught

Two Darwin Award-worthy teens failed to see how their not so subtle robbery would end in arrest. The 17 and 18-year-olds made plans to meet with a friend in Phnom Penh’s Por Senchey district on Tuesday night.

The trio boozed and danced, and then the teens asked to borrow the friend’s moto to pick up a fourth partier. When the teens took their sweet time coming back, the friend reported his missing bike.

Police caught the 17-year-old walking around town on Friday, and he admitted the duo pawned the bike for $200 and spent all the money. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
